madvike (2583) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 26, 2011
On cask at GTMW - Hazy yellow pour with a white head. Light spice on the nose, with some funk and a bit of fruit, most notably apricot. Taste is light fruit, yeasty goodness, and a light malt base. Smooth and well-carbonated.

On tap at the brewpub. Orange hazy. Nice head of medium bubbles which dissipates rather quickly. Fresh, fruity nose w/ a bunch of a lavender baby powder character. Light to medium bodied. Lightly tart and crisp w/ just a hair to much bitterness (which is really not distracting). Vigorous carbonation. If you like hoppy saisons, this is a good one.

Huhzubendah (2266) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 19, 2013
The beer is fairly hazy,appearing copper to orange hued with an off-white head. The aroma offers malt, sweet and sour apples, green, earth. Earth and mineral water character. Perhaps a mild tartness. Medium bodied, finishing dry with a hint of spice. Overall, this was okay.

Bottle at Dan’s, courtesy of Armin. Big thanks man! Pour is hazy lemon in appearance with a small white head that quickly dissipated. Tart lemon peel, wheat, white pepper, light pineapple, yeast, and pear in the aroma. Taste is very spicy, bread, pepper, light pineapple, booze, citrus, and band-aid. Nice. Mouthfeel is medium with high carbonation. Pretty tasty stuff.

Draft at kedzie. From notes. Malty and bready with a little apple. A little on the fizzy side. Decent, but not really my style.

msante79 (2210) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - APR 11, 2010
On tap at brewpub. Pours hazy golden orange with white head. Aroma of citrus, yeast, and some sweet malt. Flavor of yeast, citrus, pepper, and some malty sweetness. Finishes with light pepper. Mouthfeel was medium. Decent saison but not really my thing.

tmoreau (2127) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - SEP 18, 2012
On tap at the Bavarian Lodge in Lisle, IL., and served to house stemware showing a hazed, orangy gold color, modest, soft white head foam that reduced quickly to a ring & film, and left some light, wavy lacing on the glass. The nose was light yeast, mid-fruit as apricot/peach, citrus as orange, and light spiciness. The flavor presented soft malt, some alcohol warmth, a moderate, lingering hop bitterness, with earthy & peppery notes. The body was medium, with good effervescence, and pleasant dryness complemented the bitter finish. Spot on style interpretation.

Very different beer. Fruity smell. Darker yellow pour with sticky white head. Lots going on with the taste I can't put my finger on. But somehow comes out good. Yeasty? Peppery? I think! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bright yellow haze. Minimal head. Smells of coriander and oranges. Taste is spicy and cloves. Solid. Very dry finish
